What is easiest way to drain fresh water tank on 23'Whaler Conquest? Thanks.

unscrew the hose from the showerhead, hang the hose over the side, and run the pump until the tank empties. BillS

Bill is right, that is the easiest way. To get the drain plug you have to almost be a contortionist--I propped my body upside-down with most my entire torso in the engine wells between the two engines to unscrew the plastic drain plug. After that, I got a screw-plastic nipple, clamped a hose onto it, and have a plastic threaded nipple and plug on the pigtail hose that reaches most of the way into the bilge area. This way I can drain it anytime more easily.

Be carefull when completely draining the tank. The pump could loose its prime. It happens all the time on my 21 conquest.

That's when your lung capacity comes in handy. Just suck on the shower hose with the pump runnig and you'll get prime back quick. BillS
